Sampling-surface orientation and clast macrofabric in periglacial colluvium

Description :
To isolate the influence of sampling-surface orientation on the macrofabric of periglacial colluvial deposits, clast orientation measurements were obtained from 7 paired horizontal and vertical exposures in turf-banked solifluction lobes on Niwot Ridge, Colorado Front Range. Fabrics obtained from vertical faces were stronger than those from horizontal exposures in 6 of the pairs. Near-horizontal sampling surfaces yield less biased results than vertical exposures, owing to operator perceptions, procedural difficulties, and the relative thinness of the layer affected by colluvial processes.
